The Atzkav Sniper Rifle is a semi-automatic electron sniper rifle manufactured by Lightning Bolt Co.. It has an effective range of 150+ meters. It comes with the Omarof (16x Telescopic) optics in default loadout.[1]

When the electron bolt impacts a target, it generates up to 3 arches than can hit nearby individuals up to 3.8 m. inflicting shock damage. Also, it leaves residual energy for up to 4.5 seconds, that will further charge subsequent shots.

In-game description

The Atzkav is a unique precision sniper rifle from Lightning Bolt Co. Once the charging handle is engaged, it accurately fires a charged electron to deal significant energy damage that spreads to nearby conductive targets. This special pulse effect also leaves a residual charge in the strike area that increases damage delivered by subsequent electron shots. Alongside the rifle's special firing capabilities, the Atzkav is best known for its distinct barrel that crackles with energy when powering its next shot.
